HOUSTON — Dwight Howard knows what people think. In Central Florida, many people who once adored him now regard him as a villain because he forced the Orlando Magic to trade him in 2012. In Southern California, many call him a "coward" because he left the Los Angeles Lakers via free agency and signed with the Houston Rockets. But here's the thing: Even though he still cares what people think, he didn't let that stop him from doing what will make him happiest.
